This is recipe #3 from *Microwave Cooking* by Lorna Rhodes & gets high marks from me because I love the primary ingredients & due to its versatility. It would make a great finger-food appy, starter course or tasty side when served w/beef or chicken. *Enjoy* !

  2. Place half the butter in a bowl & microwave on HIGH for 1 minute. Then add the mushroom stalks + shallots & cook on HIGH for 2 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes.

Delicious! OK I must confess, I got sliced mushrooms so mine is a little different, but no less fantastic. I sauted the mushrooms and shallots in butter and then transferred them to a plate and topped them with the crumble4d Stilton. I popped the dish in the microwave for a minute and it melted to a tasty blue heaven! I made this for ZWT #6 and I'm a Quisine Queen!
